Shafay Khan's Story
Shafay Khan, aged four, a resident of Faisalabad was suffering from frequent chest infections since birth. Recently he developed difficulty in breathing and was taken to the cardiologist who advised him for an ECHO test. After his test, he was found to have Atrial Septal Defect (ASD). The cardiologist advised him to undergo ASD closure. Hence Shafay Khan was admitted to University of Lahore Teaching Hospital, on 03.02.2021 where ASD Closure was performed on him by Dr. Faiz Rasool. He was kept under observation until the doctors were completely satisfied with his progress. Five days later, he was discharged from the hospital in a satisfactory condition. He has significantly improved and is ready to start his school soon. His parents can hardly wait for that day. The surgery was conducted with the support of Pakistan Children Heart foundation and other donors.
